Hi,

Does your roof have any damp proofing below the stones or there is only the slab ? Because the leaks seem very big .

Hello,

I think that the cement plastering in brick wall is the culprit. These cracks due to some poor mortar ratio and improper curing.

Also I don't think that your slab is an issue. Because before laid tile's on the roof builders might done the weatherproofing. Also i see the seepage occurs in your wall & slab intersection.

Confirm whether this water leaked wall is exactly below the wall were cracked? In that case I would recommend you to chip of the damaged surface and redo the plastering.

Is your building is made by brick masonry (or) Concrete beams & columns?
